I had the slightly sad news that my seasonal position in the local charity shop will not be renewed this year (cutbacks across all the stores not just me being pants at my job thankfully at least!), so hubbie and I are going to have to learn to be more frugal! So I was quite pleased when I got four free packets of seeds from a RHS website offer.
We now have squash, tomatoes, spring onions and sweetcorn all potted around the place. Hopefully they will all take and we can make a big saving on our weekly shopping. I just need to convince hubbie to let me have a cow to milk and some chickens in our garden and I am practically Barbara Good, but I do draw the line at stinging nettle soup!
I just need to invest in some decent wellies and one of those wax jackets and away I go (although buying those things might not entirely be a step in the right direction of making cutbacks!). I am hoping hubbie will not ask me to cut back on my twice-weekly coffee sessions with the girls. But he still has his world of Warcraft subscription (not that he plays much anymore thankfully!) so I still have some leverage…
Thankfully our sunflowers have started sprouting, so there is still hope for us in the great sunflower competition!
